1.What’s your Ethnicity? I have English roots with some Scandinavian flair. 2. What’s your sign? I’m a textbook Pisces. 3. Where are you from? I was born in the Bay Area, but raised in Boise, Idaho. Which means I prefer the 49ers right along with the Boise State Broncos (if you missed the 2007 Fiesta Bowl game, you seriously missed the best game in college ball history!). 4. What did you like most about growing up in LA? Even though Boise’s the capitol city of Idaho, when I grew up there it had a very smalltown feel. It was the kind of place where you could walk to school and you knew all your neighbors. My dad was really into hunting, fishing, and camping, so we spent plenty of time appreciating the outdoors. 5.What kind of mischief did you into while growing up? I have two brothers, so I spent a most of my time hanging with the boys. We played football, rode bikes, and probably terrorized every babysitter in town. Mischief was my middle name. 6. What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? Besides owning up to skydiving, I’m going to plead the fifth on this one! 7. What brought you to LA? I was scouted by a modeling agent when I was 16, and by the next year I had graduated from high school early and was modeling overseas. While my classmates were going to senior prom, I was hanging out at nightclubs in Tokyo. It was an amazing experience. Soon after I got back to Idaho, opportunity in LA knocked, and I knew I had to answer. I love my life here. 8. What’s your favorite hobby and why? I’m really into power yoga. It’s like yoga on steroids. I train with celebrity trainer Mark Blanchard – he kicks my butt. It’s my meditation, workout, and therapy all in one. It’s always fun to show off a crazy arm balance when you’re at a party. 9. What’s your guilty pleasure? Studio City Frozen Yogurt! It’s the best yogurt shop in Los Angeles. The pumpkin pie and pistachio flavors are the best. I singlehandedly probably pay their overhead.

10. Who do you admire? My parents. They have persevered more than any other two people I know. Whenever I want to give up or give in, I think of their struggles, and that keeps me going. 11. What’s one of your personal goals? I recently worked with Joey Pantoliano on a film, and got to know him and his charity work. He founded this amazing non-profit organization called No Kidding Me Too (www., whose main focus is to use the powerful voice of the entertainment industry to help remove the stigma attached to mental illness through education and the breaking down of societal barriers. It’s a cause very close to my heart, and I hope I can get to the place in my career where I too can raise awareness through my work and my voice. 12. What do guys compliment you on the most? Probably my bubble butt. I’ve been asked on several occasions if it’s “real.” I guess that’s supposed to be a compliment. 13. What’s your favorite body part on yourself? I’d have to say my belly button. It’s sort of an innie-outie. I used to abhor it, but now I think it’s kind of cute. 14. What’s your least favorite body part on yourself? My feet. Years of running barefoot through Idaho dirt must have taken its toll. 15. What do you look for in a guy? Integrity. Intelligence. A great sense of humor. Yadda yadda. 16. What’s the first thing you notice about a guy? I’m a sucker for pretty eyes. 17. What turns you on? Double Double with cheese. Animal style. 18. What turns you off? Insincerity, materialism. Unfortunately you can run into a lot of that in LA. After a while you learn the best way to deal with it is to just be true to yourself. 19. What’s your biggest pet peeve? Flakiness: it’s a great quality in a crust, but not so much in a person. 20. Who’s your celebrity pass? I’ve found my Brad Pitt, thank you very much. RM

Although the passenger cabin is a bit tight you’ll feel as if the car has been molded around you. All your controls (shifter, radio, navigation, charge level) are within arms length and easy to use. There is not much room for storage, but the Roadster was never intended for long family vacations. This is the future and you should sit back and realize this is history being made. Enjoy the ride.

and breaking barriers. The lines on the Roadster are clean and efficiently aerodynamic. The 2009 Roadster has carbon fiber panels which help limit the weight to 2,690. You will be the talk of the neighborhood with this ultimate green machine sitting in your driveway.



Tesla Motor’s design team deserves a standing ovation for this jem, pushing the boundaries

Some people find it hard to imagine the car’s supercar-level acceleration comes from a motor about the size of a watermelon. And while most car engines have to be moved

with winches or forklifts, their’s weighs about 115 pounds. Compare that to the mass of machinery under the hood of a $300,000 supercar that still can’t accelerate as quickly as the Tesla Roadster. They’ve also designed their motor to have efficiencies of 85 to 95 percent; this way the precious stored energy of the battery pack ends up propelling you down

2009 Tesla Roadster Price: $101,500+ Engine (Motor): 375 Volt AC Electric Torque: 276 lb-ft. Horsepower: 284 hp 0-60 MPH: 3.9 Sec. Top Speed: 125 mph EST. MPC*: 220 Combined Recharge Time: 3.5 Hours Available: In Production

the road instead of just heating up the trunk.


The Tesla Roadster’s battery pack — the car’s “fuel tank” — represents the biggest innovation in the Tesla Roadster and is one of the largest and most advanced battery packs in the world. Tesla Motors has combined available and proven lithium ion battery technology with their

own unique battery pack design to provide multiple layers of safety. It’s light, durable, recyclable, and it is capable of delivering enough power to accelerate the Tesla Roadster from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds. Meanwhile, the battery stores enough energy for the vehicle to travel about 220 miles without recharging, something no other production electric vehicle in history can claim.


Tesla Motors has taken every step to make the Roadster as safe as it is efficient and beautiful. The Roadster is equipped with the ABS system which ensures the car will remain stable and stop in a straight line when the brakes are applied. The Tesla Roadster features driver and passenger side airbags, as well as front and rear energy absorbing zones. This should put your mind at ease and let you concentrate on the road. RM
